Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Residents of Fort Campbell, Clarksville and Montgomery County may notice increased activity and noise levels at Sabre Army Airfield starting April 10th, 2017, when Campbell Army Airfield closes for repairs.

The repairs will last until the end of July or beginning of August, and during that time C-17s and smaller fixed wing aircraft such as C-130s will use Sabre. Larger aircraft, including C-5s and 747s will use space Fort Campbell has arranged at Nashville International Airport for operations.

The flight path for aircraft landing at Sabre takes planes over Outlaw Field at Clarksville Regional Airport as they descend to Sabre. So, people who live and work in the vicinity of Gate 1, especially Gardner Hills, should expect increased levels of noise.

Sabre Army Airfield normally serves rotor wing aircraft such as these AH-64 Apache attack helicopters parked on a ramp across from the runway March 30, 2017. However, in coming weeks fixed wing aircraft such as C-17s will make use of the runway while Campbell Army Airfield undergoes repairs. (Leejay Lockhart, Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office)

Fort Campbell Army Airfield to undergo needed repairs

 

Written by Leejay Lockhart
Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Campbell Army Airfield’s main runway will close for repairs April 10th and should reopen in late July or early August.

The $28 million project includes resurfacing the runway, repairing ramps, taxiways, adding lights to the secondary runway, and moving lights to make them easier to maintain on the main runways.

Terry Ennis, airfield manager for Campbell Army Airfield, said the repairs also will decrease the runway width by 50 feet to the industry standard of 150 feet in width. Its overall length will decrease from 11,822 feet to 10,500 feet. The excess portion of the runways will become paved overrun that serve as a safety measure to decrease damage to aircraft on takeoff and landings if something goes wrong.

Construction equipment with suction devices that can lift concrete slabs from taxiways at Campbell Army Airfield will speed repairs to CAAF and make them cheaper since it preserves the rock subbase. The repairs are part of a $28 million contract awarded by the Army Corps of Engineers. (Leejay Lockhart, Fort Campbell Public Affairs Office)

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – The Screaming Eagle Honor Flight departed Nashville, TN to Washington, D.C., Saturday with 27 World War II, Vietnam and Korean War veterans on board.

The Screaming Eagle Honor Flight is a Clarksville-based chapter of the Honor Flight Network, a nonprofit organization that provides veterans with free flights to and from D.C. Many of the veterans on board Saturday’s flight had never been to the National Mall to see the memorials that were built in their honor.
